I am always looking for ways to sneak vegetables into my kids at meal times. These spinach waffles are a winner every time. I made them for my child’s kindergarten class and all the kids gobbled them down.
Spelt flour is an ancient grain and is even healthier than whole wheat flour. I find spelt flour at my local grocery store or online. You can sub in All Purpose flour.
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 1/2 cups packed spinach
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- In a high powered blender blend eggs, milk, buttermilk, coconut oil, butter, vanilla, maple syrup and spinach until spinach is completely blended. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and blend until fully incorporated.
- Pour into heated waffle iron.
- I serve with maple syrup and fresh berries.
Make the batter the night before and all you have to do in the morning is heat the iron and pour. I also make extra, freeze them in a single layer and pop them in the toaster on mornings I don\’t have a lot of time.
